Who Are YouthTruth?

YouthTruth is a nonprofit organisation that focuses on gathering and analysing feedback from students, educators, and parents to help schools understand and improve the learning environment. They provide surveys and data analysis services to schools and districts across the United States, aiming to give a voice to students and stakeholders in the educational system. YouthTruth’s goal is to empower educators and leaders with actionable insights to make informed decisions and create positive changes in schools.

What Reporting Issues Were YouthTruth Facing?

Dealing with lengthy and complex reports proved to be an extremely time-consuming task for YouthTruth. They found themselves investing countless hours solely in the report production process, which left them with minimal time to dedicate to interpreting the data for their clients. Recognising the need for a solution to maximise reporting efficiencies, they sought to find a way to streamline operations, freeing up valuable time to focus on gathering critical, creative insights that would enhance their clients’ experience.



The Solution? E-Tabs’ Bureau Report Automation Service!

E-Tabs’ Bureau Report Automation Service is our “local outsourcing” team, boasting over 100 years of combined market research reporting experience. The concept is designed to serve as a helping hand in the production process of your reports, by leveraging our advanced report automation software, E-Tabs Enterprise. Whether you’re too preoccupied with other projects or simply wish to alleviate some pressure, we’ve got you covered. Our team has automated thousands of reports for companies worldwide, ensuring timely delivery and consistently meeting every deadline without fail.

By partnering with E-Tabs’ Bureau team, they essentially worked as an extension of YouthTruth’s current reporting infrastructure, helping them achieve remarkable time savings on their report production. This enabled them to allocate more time to engage with clients and gather crucial insights, effectively addressing two challenges at once.



“Our four-year relationship with E-Tabs Bureau has been exceptional. The team at E-Tabs has aided us in a variety of automation projects involving lengthy reports based in both Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint, summarizing complex hierarchical data with multiple subgroups. They have provided thoughtful guidance at every step: assisting us in scoping projects, executing complex work with a high degree of quality control, and patiently iterating and revising as we improved our reports. The team is responsive, flexible, and undaunted by challenges. They have provided faithful cost estimates and have frequently delivered projects ahead of schedule.

With the help of the E-Tabs Bureau and the Enterprise software package, we were able to reduce production time for our reports approximately fivefold and reduce errors and inconsistencies in report production, even while we expanded to serve more clients and add new types of reporting to our offering.  Spending less time on report generation allows our team to focus on enhancing our clients’ experiences: we have more capacity to engage with clients and help them interpret the findings, rather than spending countless hours building reports manually and resolving discrepancies.

Beyond producing excellent work, the E-Tabs team has been a delight to work with: every interaction is agreeable and friendly.
E-Tabs has been more than a vendor; they’ve been a true partner in helping us build high-quality, efficient reporting systems.”
